    Cool shot. Red on b/w looks goodl.

    The blue figure on the right seems a bit distracting and pulling attention perhaps crop her out?

    It's a good one!
    I like view and perspective. In my humble opinion, there are 3 points to be fixed:
    - it seems to me that it is leaning to the left: straight up the buildings
    - the colours are good, but perhaps the red is too saturated (did you used a Canon?)
    - perhaps framing a bit lower and more to the left would add the perspective of the road line and would help you to avoid the half-flag at the top right: it's a bit distracting. Why not a square crop?
    hope this helps,
    cheers

    Nice shot , Mike

    Even if a tad over-saturated, it works for me. I do think a crop of the right is a good idea- the blue coat and the grey building detract more than add, I think. The 1:1 ratio Nicola suggested might just be the ticket.

    Works for me! Great color contrast, strong converging lines. I feel like I'm on my bike heading right dow that street. What kind of Sony? and where you from?

    Wow! Heaps better, Mike. It's amazing how the right crop can completely change a picture.

    Right, I'm amazed also, nice thing here is the response and how you can do things differently, by cutting or editing a bit.

    I like the wiggly lines of the bicycles' tracks. It's obvious they had to go slowly and carefully. Trying to read the inverted word on the flag also provided some entertainment. (I thought I was being a good sleuth until I saw the answer in post #9 of this thread.)

    The bright red is fine for me; I like its contrast with the rest of the scene.
